Summary

The world has fallen into war. Ciri, the child of prophecy, has vanished. Hunted by friends and foes alike, she has taken on the guise of a petty bandit and lives free for the first time in her life. But the net around her is closing.

Geralt, the Witcher, has assembled a group of allies determined to rescue her. Both sides of the war have sent brutal mercenaries to hunt her down. Her crimes have made her famous. There is only one place left to run. The tower of the swallow is waiting....

Good, but not the best of the Witches books

a great Sapkowski novel, but not the best in the series, still a great addition. great development of Ciri

Another banger in The Witcher chronicles

Had one looked into the window of bus on a summers weekday morning. Had one followed a curly haired man walking to work. one would witnessed the listening to The tower of the swallow. A moving tale, following mainly Ciri and Yennifer, I actually didn't mind that geralts story was minor in this because Ciri's story is so hick and layered. These audio books are getting better & better.

Getting even more obscure

I'm really starting to struggle with these now. Even Peter Kenny's narration struggles with the endless repetition, the unnatural dialogue and the pretentiously over-descriptive text.
It was only wanting to know what happened that kept me going through this one, rather than actually enjoying the listening experience.

Excellent Witcher Tale

Great characters and very convincing voicing. Bonhart and Skellen are particularly excellent. Intriguing and compelling story throughout.

The best one yet.

I've been loving these Witcher books read by the amazing Peter Kenny from the first minute but this one really ups the game. It delivers an even more incredible in-depth look at the world and its creatures combined with so many exciting adventurous scenes which had me on the edge of my seat. An amazing book.

some stuff was weird

In the later part of the book, the author started somewhat repeating a phrase, the first 3 times it was ok, but when it was more than that it annoyed me, and completely pulled me out of the immersion :(

Other that that i enjoyed the book, and Peter Kenny does his narration so incredibly well!

Narrator seemed un-interested in the material and sounded monotone throughout the entire story. Made it hard to finish the book

Peter Kenny is great!

I've taken a break from this book due to work, kids and life getting in the way but both Sapkowskis writing and Peter Kenny's performance have sucked me right back in. This book is arguably better than the previous one mainly due to the faster pace. But the story of the entire saga is amazing. I cannot wait for The Lady of the Lake in March!😊
